NASA has just released images of a “Hidden Galaxy” that’s 11 million light-years from Earth. While extremely bright with its magnitude of 8.4, Spiral galaxy IC 342, also known as Caldwell 5 – the Hidden Galaxy, is located near the equator of the Milky Way’s pearly disk which obscures it with cosmic gas, dust, and the glow of stars.
